Rodgers reveals Hillsborough words inspired win

Brendan Rodgers used the words of Hillsborough justice campaigner Margaret Aspinall to focus his Liverpool players ahead of their crucial 3-2 victory at Norwich. Raheem Sterling struck twice and Luis Suarez found the net for Liverpool, who opened up a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

“I used some words of Margaret Aspinall: we put them up on the wall,” revealed Rodgers after the game. “She said that ‘stress is difficult – but stress is also good. It gives you a determination to fight’.” The words were put up in three languages so that all the players could understand. MORE

“Danny Welbeck is extremely important to me and I really value him,” Moyes said.

“There have been a lot of stories about him but I can only tell you that Danny is really important to me, and really important to Manchester United.” MORE

Cook enthused by ‘brilliant’ Moores

England captain Alastair Cook has thrown his support behind new coach Peter Moores. “When I heard it was Mooresy I was really excited by it,” Cook said. “He’s a really good coach, a brilliant coach, in fact.” MORE

Comment: Stephen Brenkley

England’s new head coach Peter Moores must hit the ground not so much running as at the speed of light. Defeat against Scotland is unthinkable. It would make his return untenable from the off. MORE
